One of the improvements to the latest design of the Tiger Medium Tank is the design of the vehicle's front nose angle and driver's perspective. The latest design on the Harimau/Tiger Medium Tank avoids collisions between the canon on the turret and the body at an angle of -10° depression. In addition, the latest design provides wider visibility for the driver. The driver's field of view qualifies for maneuvering and provides better visibility.
The Factory Acceptance Test on the Tiger Medium Tank product became an important momentum for PT Pindad (Persero) as evidence of its capability in mastering technology in the defense sector, especially combat vehicle products. With various improvements to the design and the success of the First Article Medium Tank Tiger test firing, it is hoped that PT Pindad (Persero) will be able to advance and strengthen national defense.
